When seniors gather around the morning coffee table,

Their faces all beaming with joy and laughter;

They chat on diverse topics,

Ranging from families to politics;

They re-live their lives in past bygone years,

Sharing their joy, fear and tears;

They lean on one another for comfort and support,

Which their families have not given a thought;

Time flies and soon each has to depart,

Observe the silence and sadness in each heart;

Will they meet each other tomorrow?

This thought overwhelms them with sorrow;

This parting can be their last farewell,

No one knows and none can foretell!
